Feature Suggestion - Or Perhaps Not?
« on: March 22, 2012, 05:28:36 AM »
One feature that I'd like to see is the ability to specify favourites with a placeholder which you can put within the spintax, and would be expanded at spin-time.

It would be nice to be able to define a long list of composers, bands, drinks, cities or whatever, and place them within articles - without having to manage enormous lists within the spintax.

For example - a sentence like:  "Just chilling out with [a drink] listening to [band] on the cd player."   Where the words in asterisks are favourites which are placeholders for a list of perhaps a hundred or more items.

But perhaps there's already a way to do this?   I guess data merge would do it - but that seems a bit cumbersome.

yes, data merge would do it.
